Basement Development

Wallace Fleming did a great job developing our unfinished basement. Their quote was detailed, and they took the time to answer all of our questions before the project started. During construction, they were very good to work with, always friendly and responsive. The construction manager came to check the progress and work after each step/trade was complete. Wallace Fleming was quick to address any problems that arose. With small kids in the house, we really appreciated that they took the time to clean up every day before they left and made sure that all of the construction was contained in the basement. We highly recommend them.

Kitchen and main floor renovation

This was the second project for the renovation of a 1950's bungalow.
At the start, the scope included gutting and replacing the bathroom,
refinishing the hardwood floors, replacing doors and skirting boards, and painting the entire upstairs. Shortly after work began, we decided to replace the kitchen as well. Wallace Fleming took this sudden large addition in stride, and while of course it did affect the end-date, they were able to juggle the changes very well. Once again, communication was good, as a few more old-house discoveries were made and dealt with. We encountered some issues with the painting, and with a kitchen counter, which were sorted out professionally and well. (As we never doubted they would be.) In the end the new kitchen and bathroom are great. The hardwood is simply amazing (people comment on the floors when they walk into the house). It looks, from the inside, like a new house.

Kitchen Renovation

Our family worked with Wallace Fleming for a second time, a complete demolition and rebuild or our condo’s kitchen.

Renovating a small space brings on all kinds of stress, however I can say that confidence in the projects workmanship and schedule was never one of them. They were very upfront with the duration of the project and pricing. The quotes were very clear and covered all aspects. When we had some complications they brought us confidence that these things could be handled without a negative impact on our vision. The trades they used were all conscientious that we were still attempting to live in the space and kept things as clean as possible. But really it was the individual trade’s attention to detail that ensured we were happy along the whole process.

Also of note, every change was quickly documented and presented in a change order.

We would and have recommended Wallace Fleming to others for their needs. We hope to use them again for our next project as well.

Develop unfinished basement

Wallace Fleming did a created a great floor plan that captured what we had envisioned. The quality of workmanship and materials was very high. They always pointed out potential problems and had solutions they could do if we agreed. They never went ahead and did work that we did not approve. We are very pleased with the finished product. Wallace Fleming answered all of our questions. They were friendly and easy to work with. I have no reservations in recommending Wallace Fleming.

Kitchen and main floor renovation

Each renovation comes with its own unique bumps in the road and ours was no exception. Anyone who has been involved in a renovation or has been thinking about one and has been watching the shows on television knows that issues always arise unless your renovation is a rare exception. As with most renovations, our surprises began at the demolition phase and kept coming. Wallace Fleming would discuss with us the options on how to deal with the issues that arose, the costs associated with each option and what the result would be. It was always our decision in the end as to how to proceed, they were there to provide us with the information so we could make the informed decision. What impressed us most about Wallace Fleming is their desire and drive to continually improve. They always listened to us and responded in a prompt manner, but in addition, they incorporated our feedback into changes in the way they operate. Wallace Fleming brought our renovation in on time and on budget and the final results are breathtaking!

Hi guys.

Thank you for the kind review and rating! You're correct in saying that renovations are full of surprises and challenges, even for professional renovators like Wallace Fleming. We try to anticipate everything but there are situations even we couldn't have anticipated (such as the out-of-level truss framing by the original house builder). But the most important part of the project is the fact we were able to work through the challenges with your understanding, input and cooperation. That really makes a huge difference and always leads to success regardless of the challenges. In the end the space looks fantastic and a huge improvement. Bright, spacious and functional. The transformation is amazing! We do hope you enjoy the space. Thanks again for the feedback. Take care.

Main Floor Renovation

We hired Wallace Fleming and Associates to do our main floor renovation after interviewing a few other contractors. The team at Wallace Fleming was very professional, punctual, and even completed the work ahead of schedule! They had a few excellent and practical suggestions for us which enhanced our reno without contributing to a huge cost increase. We are very pleased with the outcome and are planning to hire them again to finish our basement.

Basement Renovation

We had Wallace Fleming renovate our unfinished basement. They put in two bedrooms and a storage room (we had had a bathroom built previously). The finished product is beautiful! I have had many comments on the look and quality of the work, and we are very pleased. I was particularly impressed by how much care they took over what was, relatively speaking, a smaller renovation. They were very respectful of our budget, and warned us about any extra expense well in advance. Their workers were friendly, patient with questions from curious children, and always cleaned the site well. All communication was clear, and any concerns were quickly dealt with. Wallace Fleming was wonderful to work with!

Home renovation

Wallace Fleming came in to finish our home renovations that were started by someone else. The original scope included finishing two bathrooms, installing hardwood floors on two levels, painting kitchen cabinets, and some misc electrical work for lighting. We called Vaughan and he promptly met w us that evening to go through the work. He was professional and competent and was very responsive to any emails or texts we sent. Partway through project, we changed the scope (included installing a new pantry door, new baseboards throughout the entire house, and painting the entire house). Each time we added extra work, Vaughan promptly gave us an estimate for the additional work and was able to line up the ppl necessary to complete the work in a timely manner. We were happy w the work he did and would recommend him to friends.

Hi Teri.

Thanks for the kind words and great review. It's always a pleasure when a client is so happy with the work we do that they feel that we deserve such praise and high score. To be sure, we don't take it for granted that we will receive such a score as we are our own worst/best critic. Either way we are constantly striving to be better at all aspects our business and operations regardless of the positive feedback. We know all to well that there's always room for improvement.

The house looks fantastic and is certainly a far-cry from what it was. You guys have done a great job of finishing and furnishing the space. Thanks a lot for the opportunity to work on your home. Do enjoy it!

Regards,
The Wallace Fleming Team

Basement renovation

This was a basement renovation for a 1950's bungalow. The project involved demolishing to the bare concrete and joists, roughing in plumbing for the new bathroom, relocating the furnace and hot water heater, replacing all the ducting and plumbing, upgrading and relocating the electrical service, installing new windows, and then building to the new floor plan.

We are very pleased with the results, it's a totally new world down there. But we are even more pleased with the project process from design through completion. Some highlights:

- Excellent communication. One of the best things was how quick and open communication was. Wallace Fleming was quick to respond, quick to bring up issues and potential issues as they arose (and with an old house there were little discoveries at every step.)
- The project kept moving and on schedule. Nothing stopped or hung-fire, the trades showed up as scheduled and completed work on time.
- The trades were all good to work with.
- The work was well done.
- We would to give special thanks to Cochise ("Coach"). He was the onsite project manager and all-round guy. He is simply great to work with. A very large part of the project's success and our satisfaction with it is due to Coach.

A second project with Wallace Fleming is now underway for the upstairs: new bathroom, new kitchen and a refresh of the rest.

Hi Carson.

Thanks for the great review! You guys were (and still are for that matter) a great client to work with which always, always, always, makes for a successful project.

We're really good at what we do and have the right trades and suppliers to help us along the way, but a big part of a projects' success is our clients and their attitude and approach to the challenges that come with every project. You guys were great and gracious when issues came up and were always part of the solution.

The above said we are looking forward to working with you again on your kitchen and main floor renovation. Along with the completed basement renovation, your home will be as new as it can get for a 60 year old house. (-;

The Wallace Fleming Team
